4 out of 5 stars fun

Climbed it with the broken hold. Same grade. No need to buy the broken piece from the guy who is holding it ransom.

3 out of 5 stars Thin, Sharp, Easy??

I'm not expert at grades, but I felt like this route's difficulty will depend on the type of climber you are more than other routes. Boulderers will probably think this is the easiest 11b they've ever gotten on whereas pure sport climbers will probably think it's soft but still 11b. I'd personally call this 11a.

5 out of 5 stars Fun, thin, tough.

Fun right hand Gaston move after the first bolt. Date is approximate. Climbed it pre-broken flake. Have to figure out new beta to get back up it.

3 out of 5 stars wimper, hehe

Yeah, those crimps at the beginning are pretty painful. Glad it got a consensus rating of 11b because it certainly didn't feel like an 11a... :)

4 out of 5 stars great flake

Fun balancey moves to the second bolt. Super fun and powerful moves. Defintly an ankle-breaker without atick clip.

4 out of 5 stars real name is Luminaire Noir

Thanks Dave for turning us onto this part of the wall. And thanks Ralph for letting me bolt this one with you. I had a blast doing it and then sending it. Such fun moves.
